Nevada vs. Wyoming Pick
Will No. 23 Nevada cruise to another big win in the Mountain West when the Wolf Pack go on the road to face Wyoming tonight at 11PM ET?
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Nevada is favored on the road in this game, as the Wolf Pack are getting odds of -4.5 points against Wyoming. The over/under total is listed at 157 points. Tonight’s game will be taking place from Arena-Auditorium in Laramie, Wyoming and will air live on ESPNU.
Nevada is on a seven-game win streak coming into tonight’s contest following a 74-68 win over Boise State this past weekend. Nevada is 18-3 overall, 7-0 in conference play and 11-7-2 against the spread. The Wolf Pack are averaging 81.6 points per game on offense while allowing just 68.8 per game. Caleb Martin has been leading the team this season with 19.7 points and 5.4 rebounds per game while Jordan Caroline is adding 16.7 points and 9.1 rebounds per contest.
Wyoming snapped a two-game skid this past weekend with an 85-77 win at Utah State. The Cowboys are 12-7 overall, 3-3 in the Mountain West and 8-9 against the spread. Wyoming is averaging 77.2 points per game this season while giving up 76.6 per contest on defense. The Cowboys are being led by Justin James, who is averaging 17.3 points and 6.2 rebounds per game. Hayden Dalton is right behind him with 17.2 points and 8.3 rebounds per contest.
Nevada has won four straight meetings with Wyoming, but the Cowboys have covered in three of the last five encounters. While Nevada has been rolling in conference play, the Wolf Pack are just 1-3-2 ATS in their last six and 1-1-1 ATS in their last three road games. Wyoming has managed some upsets at home, including wins over Boise State and San Diego State. I feel good about getting some points for them on their home floor. The public betting is backing Nevada on the road, but I like Wyoming to cover.
